Starstruck youngster Dawson Crawford was at the front of the queue when it came to meeting his heroes.

The four-year-old from Burnley met Britain's Got Talent finalists Boogie Storm during the Christmas lights switch on in Blackburn.

A pupil at Brunshaw Primary School he was shopping with his aunt, Kourtney Naughton and was one of the first in the queue to meet the group.

Courtney said: “Dawson absolutely loves Boogie Storm and as soon as we found out they would be here I knew I had to bring him.

"It was well worth the trip as we have had a fantastic time!”

The meet and greets were organised as part of the celebrations, which also saw Blackburn’s home-grown star The Songaminute Man, aka Ted McDermott, steal the show with his now famous rendition of Quando Quando Quando before Jack P Shepherd from Coronation Street flicked the switch on the Christmas lights.
